What happens after 20...Bxd1 21 Bxd1 Qh4?

  WannaBe: <soberknight> I don't know how white's bishop is going to take d1... White has 1 bishop left, and it is on e3. Did you mean Rxd1? then maybe 22. Nf3? or 22. e5? I am not quite sure...
May-25-05  soberknight: Yes, Wannabe, I meant 21 Rxd1.
May-25-05  soberknight: Yes, 22 Nf3 or e5 are both good. I was wondering if anyone had deeper analysis, i.e. could Black have saved the game, and was he taken by surprise when Alekhine played 22 exd6 instead of Rxd1?

  WannaBe: <soberknight> The blunder check gave a lot of blunders, too many to post here. Do you have a specific move you wish to know?
May-25-05  soberknight: <WannaBe> Since I don't own a computer chess program, I don't understand what you mean. Did you go through the entire game and ask the computer where each player could have made a move that was numerically better than the text by a certain amount? Or does blunder check mean something else?

  Calli: Alekhine gives "20...Bxd1 21.Rxd1 Qh4 22.Kf1!" which looks unclear to me.

AA then says 23...cxd6? is bad and 23...bxc3 24.bxc3 is better but doesn't explain.

Mar-21-17  Vollet: I think that 20...Bxd1 21.Rxd1 simply follows 21... Qg4+.
